skullthroneThe Skull Throne by Peter V. Brett

One of the most anticipated books of this year for sure. However, it isn’t for the good reasons. The Warded Man (The Painted Man in some countries), Book 1 of the Demon Cycle was in my own owrds, just magnificent. It was the best read of that year for me. It had everything, hardship, magic system, world building and character growth. Then the next book The Desert Spear, completely went off track and had several cringe moments along with the WTF moments. Ok, so second book wasn’t so good, Book 3…was just mind boggling.

The forums at BFB have not been kind of Peter V. Brett and he even tweeted that he came upon a forum that slagged in off and how he shouldn’t have looked.

I really want this book to be good. I do. I want some redemption for a man that clearly has a talent for writing, but somewhere along his storytelling lines, he’s made some indifferent calls.

TheRebirthsOfTao-144dpi-21-e1424983024376Rebirths of Tao by Wesley Chu

Every now and again we like to promote Science Fiction even though our sister site www.bestsciencefiction.com is up and running now.

The Rebirths of Tao is the third book in the Tao Series, and has garnered Wesley Chu with a lot of praise.

Action packed and a page turner, this is one author you should get into if you haven’t already.

graceThe Grace of Kings by Ken Liu

Ken Liu has won Nebulaand Hugo award winner. The Grace of Kings is his first fantasy novel and it looks to be another epic series.

The following is from Amazon: Wily, charming Kuni Garu, a bandit, and stern, fearless Mata Zyndu, the son of a deposed duke, seem like polar opposites. Yet, in the uprising against the emperor, the two quickly become the best of friends after a series of adventures fighting against vast conscripted armies, silk-draped airships, and shapeshifting gods. Once the emperor has been overthrown, however, they each find themselves the leader of separate factions—two sides with very different ideas about how the world should be run and the meaning of justice.

dragonsDragons at Crumbling Castle by Terry Pratchett
